GT9 Goat Is a Modern Pontiac GTO Judge
Modern times have brought us reinterpretations of classic muscle and pony cars, allowing the new generations to understand and enjoy the phenomenon and bringing back the mean-looking hundreds of hp in the mpg-obsession era. Unfortunately, some of the heroes didn’t make it and one of these creatures that has been lost for years is the Pontiac GTO, the one that started it all!
However, certain aftermarket developers are ready to bring back the bad boy. Let’s take Trans Am Depot, for example. We are talking about a company that is planing to offer a tribute to the 1969 GTO Judge, with the development being named GT9 Goat.
So far, the company has only released teaser images (we must thank Jalopnik for the scoop) of the project, which is based on the Chevrolet Camaro. As you can see, we’ll get a lot of visual goodies, such as a split front grille and massive air scoops on the hood, with the same level of attention also received by the rear end. We’ll have to wait and see if the company also offers interior and tech mods.
“The 6T9 Goat concept was created by designer Kevin Morgan to capture the look and feel of the classic '69 GTO Judge,” a company statement reads. “The 1969 GTO is considered by many to be one of the top ten muscle cars of all time. Available this fall, this modern day version incorporates the look of yesteryear with the modern convenience and technology of today.”
